Launched in 2002, the Ludologica Collection examines the most important video games of all time. Each volume is dedicated to a key theme or a seminal title. The discussed texts are placed within the production of the game designer and the genre of development and are analyzed in depth. From Will Wright to Shigeru Miyamoto, from Hideo Kojima to Richard Garriott, Ludologica thus creates an original mosaic of aesthetics, genres, and autonomous intentions with few comparisons in the current publishing landscape. The collection offers a new way to look at video games with an approach that is both accessible and stimulating. Among the authors are prominent figures from specialized criticism, university professors from prestigious institutions, and enthusiasts.


Sex and video games, two seemingly divergent, if not contradictory, themes, share numerous affinities. First and foremost, both are presented as all-encompassing experiences, oscillating between the physical and the metaphysical, the material and the spiritual, physical (con)actions and mental (de)viations. From Custer's Revenge to Catherine, passing through Silent Hill 2, Mass Effect, and many other titles, this collection of essays, taking a multidisciplinary approach ranging from historiography to game design, from psychology to philosophy, from pedagogy to gender studies, traces the evolution of the representation of sex and eroticism in video games through the analysis of specific case studies and topic-related themes.
